What If We Were? ~ Uwais Coetzee

what if we were different?
what if we were the same?
what if we realized
that we make the rules of this game?
what if we were the heroes?
the heroes that saved the day.
the heroes that gave hope to people
that never felt that way.
what if we were lovers
who'd love the way we could?
what if we were together
that way I know I would
love you constantly
to be or not to be?
that became the thought.
never the question because
everyday i fought
the urge to say
that i wanted to be
but never have i ever known
how you felt about me.
what if we were the same
spots in this world becoming a blur?
what if we were together?
what if we were?
